Any declaration of Catalonia’s independence, official or not, has no legal effect, the High Court of Justice of Catalonia declared in their statement published on Twitter

The document says that the declaration isn’t a source of law, as it contradicts the Spanish Constitution.

“Neither the law on transitional period, which was suspended by the Constitutional Court, nor ant declaration on independence has legal effect, as it contradicts the Spanish Constitution,” the statement reads.

As it was reported earlier, Catalonia is going to proclaim independence from Spain; however, this unilateral proclamation will not take place until Madrid and Barcelona hold consultations in the coming weeks – so that the independence comes on more favourable conditions for both sides.
